ANNE KLEIN:
AN ICONIC BRAND

Clothes won’t change the world. The women who wear them will. ANNE KLEIN

Anne Klein was an innovator; a passionate creator and visionary who helped define the American fashion landscape with her eponymous brand. For almost 50 years, Anne Klein has been synonymous with American sportswear.

In 1968, Anne Klein founded her namesake label, forever changing how women thought about and bought clothes. She was the first American designer to dress women in separates, offering them a range of jackets, tops and bottoms. In 1973, Anne competed in the Battle of Versailles, joining the likes of Oscar de la Renta and Bill Blass to put American fashion on the global map. Unfortunately, Anne passed away the following year.

Over the years, a succession of designers have created clothing under the Anne Klein label, including Donna Karan, who began her career under Anne’s tutelage, Louis Dell’Olio and Isabel Toledo. The world of Anne Klein encompasses womenswear, accessories, footwear, watches, eyewear, jewelry, legwear and more.

Under the new vision of Creative Director Sharon Lombardo, the brand is doing more than simply meeting women’s fashion needs; it is celebrating her whole life by providing her with elevated essentials destined to live at the front of her closet.

Today, Anne Klein is available in forty countries in collaboration with our global partners. The brand will be celebrating its 50th anniversary as a women’s lifestyle collection dedicated to timeless American classics in 2018.
